Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Paradise awaits you at this brand new, charming home that sleeps five comfortably. The Master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bathroom, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and access to a shared bathroom, and the small den has a full size sleeper sofa if needed. All rooms have access to the wrap-around lanai that features ceiling fans, hammocks, dining furniture, lounge chairs and a tiki bar. For your grilling pleasure, there is a full sized gas grill on the lanai.

The house has an open feel, with ceiling fans throughout. It has a modern, fully equipped kitchen, featuring stainless steel appliances, a long center island that can accommodate up to six at the breakfast bar in addition to the dining area.

The living room has a 32” flat screen TV, DVD player, satellite tv, and a nice collection of DVD movies.

Forgot to bring your mask and snorkel? No worries! We have some you can use, because a short walk from the house is the best snorkeling on the Big Island - the Wai ’Opae Tide Pools. The offshore reef protects the tide pools from the sometimes-harsh southeastern shores of Hawaii. As you explore the maze of pools, you will find corals, schools of juvenile fish, moray eels, sea urchins, sea turtles, etc… It is like being in an aquarium! When you come home from the tide pools, there is an outside shower you can use to rinse off.

If you are looking for a romantic getaway, or a family looking to spend quality time together, our home offers something for everyone in paradise.

Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family of four. It had everything we needed (including snorkeling gear, shoes and beach towels!). We didn't realize how wonderful the tide pools would be and how perfect this location was to reach the volcanoes and waterfalls. Mostly we ignored any rain and continued our outdoor activities but the planetarium and tsunami museum were two indoor visits my boys loved. Thank you for sharing you home with us.

Awesome

Beautiful home, a walk to the tide pools for fabulous snorkeling. Enjoy the greenery of the neighborhood, and Coqui frogs at night. It was a fun relaxing stay. Hope to return to this home. A great price for Kapoho.

Lovely recent construction for families who like to cook

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed coming back to this house. The architecture is so soothing. It seems like a recently built home. Great bathrooms. The double pane windows help with the big island nighttime nature sounds. All is clean and well kept. We loved cooking and grilling at dinner time after a morning snorkeling at Wai Opae preserve.
